It's just white latex paint; thin it with a drop or two of water.

I have a roll of that; it's been in the Navy longer than I was.

Indispensable for labeling keys or other small objects.

It's a lot easier to use than white-out-- just peel it off the screen instead of worrying about nicking the LCD panel with a razor scraper...*

Must've been a senior moment. It was the largest size available at the time, obviously I've forgotten what the CI was.

Walt, most likely it was a 440CI wedge motor. Chrysler didn't use the Hemi in 1962 as I remember. In the 50's they used a 392 Hemi and then in mid 1964 they came out with the 426 street Hemi to replace the 440 max wedge engine but did keep the 440 street version.

Sorry, off topic again.

Rich's Weekly Reader comment made me nostalgic. Remember Goofus and Gallant from Highlights?

there's an email floating around with a link to a quiz of about 20 "old fossil" questions. I'll track it down monday and see if I can post it.


reading some of the old things in this thread reminded me of a visit I made to my grandmother. She was outside scrubbing the windshield of her new car, trying to get a line off the glass. I had to explain to her that it was her radio antenna in the glass. Sometimes I think that things were a lot better back then.

Not only do I have a B&W set like that (as I mentioned in a previous post), but we also have a Color TV with the tuner knob......channels 2-13 plus UHF. Both have outlasts several other 'new-fangled' TV's we've had!

Walking four blocks to catch the school bus, and this was in town.
When "shade tree mechanics" actually meant you parked under the tree so you could throw a rope over the limb to pull the engine out of the car, and replace/rework it.
